That bastard is on my short list of men I would like to beat down (Along with Screech and Lars Ulrich). I figured there was some connection.
Like a lot of other things that are fun, MMA is legal on the reservation, and although it hasn't been mentioned publicly, I think the state may be trying to keep MMA on the reservations to distract the various Native American nations from the fact that the state is once again attempting to tax cigarettes, gas, etc. currently sold on reservation land.
